Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

Happy Tuesday, all! I am happy to have a little bit of time tonight to focus on me, and I decided to contemplate my next steps. One really cool bookish meme I have been seeing is Top Ten Tuesday, and this week seems perfect. Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

Book Review: “Dark Archives,” by Megan Rosenbloom

Wishing you all a contemplative and family-filled Martin Luther King Day. On the one hand, I am thrilled to have the day off from a stressful job, but on the other, a price was paid. Martin Luther King Jr. has all new significance in a year of division like this, and I hope you all … Continue reading Book Review: “Dark Archives,” by Megan Rosenbloom

ARC Review: “Ink and Shadows,” by Ellery Adams

Happy Sunday, all! I was so ridiculously excited to receive Ink and Shadows by Ellery Adams.

ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I think it is safe to say that we were all sick of 2020. There are no promises for 2021, and not much will change right away, but there is definitely a consensus that 2021 can't be *as bad* as 2020. One great thing that is happening this January is A Curious … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate, and good holiday cheer and health to all who don't!

Book Review: “Dead-End Detective,” by Amanda Flower

Hello, all! I am so ridiculously happy to be reviewing Dead-End Detective for multiple reasons: I received the ARC from Netgalley and Hallmark Publishing, I am obsessed with Hallmark Mystery Movies, and my new job is killing me so much that this is the only book I have finished in ages. It helped that this … Continue reading Book Review: “Dead-End Detective,” by Amanda Flower

ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

I don't know about anyone else, but I am having some major Sunday scaries right now. Tomorrow, I start a new job. It is the first "first day" I have had in years, and it is a remarkably different experience because of COVID. To combat the nervous energy by lining up all of my cozy … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

Down the TBR Hole #12

Since I haven't made good progress on my reading this week, I think it is time for a good TBR cleanup. I managed to remove 6 out of 10 books during my last TBR cleanup, which was a feat and a half. This session, I am feeling slightly less ambitious. A while ago, I discovered this … Continue reading Down the TBR Hole #12

Apologies for the interruption of regularly scheduled programming, but I have to tell you that Murder at an Irish Christmas, the newest Irish Village Mystery, is out now! I had such a pleasure reviewing this ARC, because Carlene O'Connor does such an awesome job of showing Ireland's little towns and beautiful seaside ruggedness. I also … Continue reading Out now: “Murder at an Irish Christmas” by Carlene O’Connor

Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

It has been way too long since I have written a real review. After promising myself not to get into a slump, I lingered while reading Murder on Cold Street and took a full week to finish it. I am partly to blame - switching jobs, planning a wedding, and other life things have gotten … Continue reading Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas
